Delish Breaky!

We enjoyed a very tasty breakfast at Town this morning. Food was fresh, service was great and the atmosphere was relaxing. It was so nice to have some fresh food - hard to find good places like this in the states.

One of the best restaurants in Honolulu. It's hip, too! The chef clearly passionately cares about the quality of the ingredients and about cooking in general. The care and passion comes through in the dishes. He's also secure enough not to feel the need to change the menu for the sake of changing the menu. The new additions are always... More

We were in Honolulu for just a few days, on our way to Maui. The first night we ate at one of the overpriced restaurants near the beach. The food there was not good. Imagine a watermelon salad with harissa. Yeah... not well-thought-out. Plus, the prices were exorbitant. So I did some research and found Town. We were NOT disappointed.... More

I read good reviews about Town Restaurant so booked way ahead and indeed the restaurant was packed. It's a lovely building in a rather unlovely area. It was a long taxi ride from our hotel in Waikiki, so it was a bit of an adventure to go further than the usual tourist restaurants. The service was very attentive with many... More

Have dined here on 5 occasions never to be disappointed. Great drinks and wine selection. The food? Amazing every time! Great wait staff who know the food and are committed to you having a great time. Make sure to plan for at least one dinner here and escape Wakkii for one of Honolulu"s best kept secrets.

Our son had recommended Town for my wife's birthday. The reservations for she and I were early so crowds were not an issue. The menu was extensive, fresh, and changes daily. Each of the servers went over the selections at each table. We ordered the Pa' i' ah (fried taro with ahi and sauteed won bok) for our apetizer. I... More

We had an avocado and mango salad that was great. The ahi special was not bad. The bread and the focaccia was divine - I do not like focaccia but this was unbelievably good. Te apple banana cream pie was the best dessert of the trip by far!

My wife and I had heard that Town was "the" place in Honolulu so we went for dinner with our daughter and son in law. First, parking is a bit of a struggle, but we accepted that as unavoidable. Next we were greeted rather tepidly by the host who showed us to our little table next to the entrance and... More

Loved the idea of slow food, locally sourced. I wanted to go to try the paʻiʻai and was not disappointed. Host gave us the menu of the night at the door. My hub, son and I shared small plates. First came the complimentary bread with butter and olives. Then we ordered a beer and a cocktail followed by a plate... More

We were excited to try Town because we've heard so much about it and seen it on TV. It could be what we ordered, but I would describe their food to be very simple and clean. What I mean by this is that they allow the seasonal ingredients to shine. Because of this, what I ordered, swordfish, was a very... More
